Testing pyrotechnics: A part of the prototype (firework) is being stressed with a frequency of 1 stroke/s and an acceleration of 490 m/s2 on the vibrating table for an hour.
Fireworks approval test at the BAM Test Site at Horstwalde:
Testing takes place to see whether the specified requirements for the time delay after ignition, sound values and direction and height of flight are met.
Comparing the mode of action of an approved firecracker, here red, with black powder as an explosive composition and a non-approved flash banger:
The explosion of an approved firecracker left behind corresponding burns in the hand (a replica in the picture).
The non-approved, here black, flash banger has already obviously ignited…
… and its explosion completely destroys the hand.
Non-approved flash bangers do not always completely destroy the hand – however, due to an unspecified amount of explosives severe injuries and loss of limbs are always possible.
